Dakota digital VHX

Post by hutcho » Wed Feb 12, 2020 4:36 pm

Anyone running these yet? Mine is a 79 but I'm sure it's the same or similar throughout all the cluster types in this line. I am doing some research on these and I would like to know where the gear shift indicator shows up in the cluster? Or does the add on make it show up elsewhere? Planning on the comp/temp as well so I'm hoping that the prndl is not gonna take up the same space. Thanks!

I have them in my 67 but they are different for your year. Personally it's a love/,hate relationship on mine. I love their functionality and ease to use/set but I hate theasthetics. Yours won't be so bad because it goes under your bezel. Mine is basically a black rectangle. On mine the shift lights aren't hookedup but most of that stuff is either up by the tach or shows in the odometer area

I have the new DD analog instrument panel like phil said the panels are a hassle at least for me because they are so universal, i.e. have to be programed to accept the inputs you are using which is good,bad part is their instruction leave much to be desired, don't always work the way DD says they should, tech support is better than usual but not great, have messed with at least 5 different DD IP's and all have their quirks.
Recommend installing module where you can get to it, been using a radar detector to set to calibrate MPH, could use an Ipad with the right software,used a late model GM fuel tank with 90-240 ohms, LM7 temp sender,and 8 pole tranducer on my Dana 20, did not use shift indicator but considering the problems with the chevy van column we used (never got the pointer quite right) should have tried.
Like most things in the aftermarket it takes lots of patience to get it right!
